As per my grant conditions, here is a report for the July period.
This month was mainly spent on providing a general fix for the weak backreferences in stashes globs and CVs. This means that in general there are likely to be less crashes when doing odd things with stashes and globs.
Over the first 21 weeks I have now averaged about 17 hours per week, slightly less than the nominal 20. I have used up approx 70% of the hours allocated to the grant.
